Costa Rica: Playa Uvita, Cristal Ballena Hotel

Cristal Ballena Hotel Resort & Spa: Costa Rica is located on the southwest coast in Costa Rica.

This resort & spa is nestled on top of the cliffs that over look the Pacific Ocean.

This hotel offers great access to one of the most unique parks in all of Costa Rica.

The Ballena National Park is famously known as “The Wales Tale”.

When tides are down, this natural formed sandbar transforms into a remarkable shape that looks just like the tale of a whale.

Around a half mile out, the visitor can get a remarkable view of the mainland from the now formed peninsula.

As the seas rise, watch the miraculous transformation of the peninsula turn into an island.

Waiting too long might result one to have to swim back to shore.

Miles and miles of beach line becomes your own personal playground. Feel free to swim in the large bays that make up the north and south side of the park.

Relax under the large palm trees that are scattered on the beaches edge and take time to explore the estuaries where the cool mountain waters from the east meet the western beaches of Costa Rica.

Coincidently this area is also one of the best places to view humpback whales migrating up and down the Pacific Coast.

Take a boat out to experience the jaw dropping size and power of these spectacular animals traveling from the cold arctic waters of the south.

After a fun filled day of whale watching and beach filled activities, relax up in the mountains at the Cristal Bellena Hotel amongst the clouds and forests.

This hotel offers breath taking views of the Pacific Ocean.

Costa Rican artifacts are scattered along the grounds of this mount side hotel.

Relax in the afternoon with a dip in the pool that overlooks the ocean. Or unwind with a drink in your hand while socializing with others around the patio.

Relax with candle lit meals with the feel of the mountain air on your back and ocean sounds ringing through the landscape.

At night sleep without a care in the world in the romantic styled rooms that offer the couple unmatched accommodations with the privacy of your own balcony.

Here at night, only the sounds of the rainforest and ocean are present.

So what is Cristal Ballena Hotel Resort & Spa? It is a marvelous hotel with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, nestled on top of a mountain side cliff which allows access to one of the most unique national parks in all of Costa Rica.

It is a destination to explore miles of undisturbed costal shores of Playa Uvita, with adventurous whale watching excursions, while still having the opportunity to unwind high up in the mountains within the grounds of the hotel.

It is a destination that can’t be missed while traveling up and down the western coast of Costa Rica.

Cheap Travel Accommodation – Youth Hostels Versus Camping

Cheap Travel Accommodation – Youth Hostels Versus Camping
Regardless where you travel, accommodation takes up a huge hunk of your travel budget and unless you find a way to save you might have a much shorter trip than you are hoping for. One of the first things that will affect your accommodation budget depends on how many of you will be traveling together. There are huge advantages to traveling in a group or even to travel with another couple. It can save you in that staying in either youth hostels of at camping sites gets much more comfortable and cost effective if you are 4 or more people.

Obviously hotels are nice, but in reality the price of a hotel room for one night can buy you a week in cheap accommodation. Obviously you won’t have too many creature comforts but you are only sleeping there, right?

For cheap accommodation you basically have 2 choices. Youth hostels and camping sites. Lets quickly look at the pro’s and con’s of each.

Firstly, youth hostels offer cheap, cost effective stays that are often very centrally located. The accommodation is usually very basic with shared dorm-type rooms and shared bathrooms. There are usually one central kitchen area and you basically buy a bed for the night. Some do offer en-suite rooms with more comforts but these are probably more in the price range of a hotel suite. The main benefit is the fact that its central and close to all the sights and attractions that you would want to explore as a tourist.

Camping offers a lot more creature comforts and if you don’t like he idea of being cramped into a dorm room with 20 other backpackers then camping is well worth it. Its probably much cheaper than a youth hostel but you will need to either have your own tent or your own camper van. Although its much cheaper its usually on the outskirts of cities and can make the commute back and forth a real hassle – and an expensive exercise. Camping can be very sociable and a great option if you are traveling in a group.
